Smarter Style: I'm Seeing Red

According to some of the fashion news and magazines out there, RED is one of the "it" colors this fall. And that's pretty cool, I think, because red is such a fun, warm, vibrant color, and one that also flows really nicely into the holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Red is also exciting because it goes with pretty much anything, and so even if you're like me and you pretty much never, ever wear the color red, you could still enjoy wearing your usual black or tan or navy or whatever you wear, and just consider adding a new, exciting and stylish new red accessory or accent to compliment and freshen up your fall look.

You can always just paint your nails or lips a glossy, flamboyant red and call it a day, but in case you wanted to browse some trendy new red-hot choices for your fall wardrobe, here are some suggestions I've dug up to suit anyone in the family:

"Convertible" girl's infant/toddler pants from Wonderkids for under $10 at kmart.com http://www.kmart.com/wonderkids-infant-toddler-girl-s-convertible-pants/p024VA56720412P?selectedFilters=Color|Cerise&prdNo=26&blockNo=26&blockType=G26

Beautiful girl's ankle strap ballet flats from France. Hey, a mom can dream, right? http://www.jacadi.us/VAD/children-s-shoes/ballerinas/ankle-strap-ballet-flat/p:2:1:7:256479.htm?from=t&niv=46,8436&position=1

There is even quite a bit of red running through the outfits on Gap.com's boy's "Back To Cool" look page, worth checking out: http://www.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=97822&departmentRedirect=true#department=16

And for you moms, Zappos is showing over 400 red choices for handbags right now: http://www.zappos.com/handbags~4P#!/red-handbags~8

And dozens of styling belts in red as well: http://www.zappos.com/belts~1#!/red-belts/COfWARCG1wFCAskE4gIDAQII.zso?s=goliveRecentSalesStyle/desc/

I also saw this cool blouse at Old Navy in white with a red pattern, or just in solid "spitfire" which is a pretty hot way to say RED, if you ask me: http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/outfit.do?cid=97752&oid=OUT-919636022#close

And at Macy's http://www.macys.com/ I recently noticed a really eye-popping selection of red heels for that special occasion, or just to juice up your fall look with something new and glamorous for a change.

Finally, items like this classic, silk tie, on sale now, for the man of the house, from the J Crew men's store, will add some flair to any occasion:

Or this one, with geometric patterns, in "Milan Red": http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/tiesandpocketsquares/ties/PRDOVR~36803/36803.jsp

Do you like to wear red? Or at least accessorize with this color?

I'm not a fan of red.  It doesn't do me any favors!
